Code: BH/22/0394 Self Neglect - Senior Practitioners and Lead Agencies (EVENT FULL)

This is a specialist course for practitioners and managers who are regularly working with complex situations where people are believed to be self neglecting and at risk of harm. This may include social workers, assessment team managers, housing managers and senior practitioners in provider services who regularly work with complex cases and who may have to take a lead role in convening a self neglect planning meeting.

The self-neglect procedure, part of the Sussex Safeguarding Adults Policy and Procedures, sets out a clear multi-agency approach to working with people who self neglect.  The course will review the procedures and will provide an opportunity for sharing knowledge and expertise, exploring limitations and challenges, evaluating good practice, escalating concerns where there are areas of uncertainty, and managing multi agency relationships and input. Participants will be expected to come prepared to share examples, and to work together on some case material.

Applications are welcome from partner organisations in the city, albeit that applicants are expected to have a significant role in co-ordinating responses to self neglect. (There is a seperate course for people requiring a foundation understanding of the issues of working with people who self neglect.)
